Shortlisted in the Saskatchewan Book Awards A deserted woman has an affair with a Hindu god while her husband lusts for jewels that are guarded by cobras. A widower retraces the last European holiday he took with his wife. Excursions are made into the personal and political absurdities of language and naming. Whether it s a bus tour in Mumbai, a café stop in Lausanne, or a sunset walk along the Bay of Bengal Ven Begamudré s journeys are filled with longing, desire and a tenderness that persists beyond reason. This is The Lightness Which Is Our World, Seen from Afar.
